Sanctification of Fasting

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shah Quthb ad-Din Ahmad Wali’ullah ibn ʿAbd ar-Rahim al-ʿUmari ad-Dihlawi (q.s.) said, “When a person tries to subjugate the lower soul and eliminate its bad qualities, his act will take on a sanctified form in the World of Images.  Among the purest of the gnostics is the one who concentrates on this form, for he is furnished with knowledge from the unseen world and achieves union with the Divine Essence because of transcendence and sanctification.  This is the meaning of ‘Fasting is done for My Sake and I Reward it.’”
